Hi Raziel....really great Photographs!

i think what Kaz meant was that flickr does not show Exif data for your clicks. have you turned something off there?

[MENTION=9606]ayush_chh[/MENTION]: Hi Ayush Thanks, I'm new to flickr, just uploaded them last month and I don't know if I've changed any settings..I'll check later. Also, the pics are cropped and did some basic editing in Photoshop so the output may not have the full exif data. Another thing is I have used different manual focus lenses via adapter so the exif wouldn't contain lens settings like Aperture/FOV..etc.

The basic settings I used for the NEX are:
Mode: Aperture Priority
ISO: Auto or 200 for day.
Image Size: 16:9 (I like a wider composition)
Aperture: Usually full open @ 1.4, 1.8 etc, for nice bokeh & depth of field.

Lenses used are:
Carl Zeiss HFT Planar 50mm f1.4 (Rollei QBM Mount)
Pentacon Electric 50mm f1.8 MC (M42 Mount)
Helios 44-2 58mm f2.0 (M42 Mount)
SEL1650PZ (NEX Kit lens)
SEL16F28 ( NEX Wide angle)
( Also a lot of pics are shot using my custom Lumia 800. Can be viewed here: Images by Raziel ®: Photos taken with my mobile phone & more )

I hope that helps. :)

Finally another NEX user who is trying out manual lenses .... It's awesome fun considering that you can get the lenses pretty cheap and then fit them via adapters :)

[MENTION=2396]ayush[/MENTION]: thanx :)
[MENTION=8593]izzikio_rage[/MENTION]: Yes it's really awesome, I love those vintage lenses coz they are full of character, I love the bokehs and flares they create. They may not be perfect but the imperfection is what makes them special for me. Not to mention that they are built way tougher than today's lenses. The Sony 50mm for NEX cost like 20K while a Takumar/Pentacon/Minolta 50mms costs only like 2.5K and gives great images.

[MENTION=120687]Raziel[/MENTION]: very true, plus there is the whole awesome feeling of using it manually with focus peaking and getting some good images. BTW where are you buying these lenses from? I had a couple that came as part of our very old film camera, but I can't seem to find any reliable place to purchase them here


A thread that I had stated to discuss buying used lenses ... http://www.digit.in/forum/cameras-camcorders/184165-buying-used-lenses.html

[MENTION=8593]izzikio_rage[/MENTION]: Agreed! focus peaking makes these lenses a joy to use.
I buy mostly from ebay, also once from jjmehta forum. There are some trusted members/friends there that I usually buy from. Before the purchase I always ask the seller for detailed info about the item like the condition of the optics etc. and then only I buy it. So far the lenses I've bought were in good condition.
and btw, Nice thread there, will be helpful.
